It has specific requirements that many undocumented immigrants cannot meet. The most difficult requirement for undocumented immigrants to bypass to be considered for citizenship is that one must be a legal permanent resident (green card holder) for at least five years. There are only three ways to become a legal permanent resident: be admitted as a refugee, be sponsored by an eligible employer, or be sponsored by a close family member such as one’s parents or children. Undocumented immigrants who have been in the United States since they were children cannot be admitted as refugees, many of their employers do not offer sponsorships, nor do many have close family members that can sponsor them. In the case that they can be sponsored by an employer or family member, undocumented immigrants can wait up to a decade or two before their application is even considered.

Neoclassical Theory of Migration One of the oldest and most commonly used theory used to explain migration is the Neoclassical theory of Migration. Neoclassical Theory (Sjaastad 1962; Todaro 1969) proposes that international migration is connected to the global supply and demand for labor. Nations with scarce labor supply and high demand will have high wages that attract immigrants from nations with a surplus of labor. The main assumption of neoclassical theory of migration is led by the push factors which cause person to leave and the pull forces which draw them to come to that nation. The Neoclassical theory states that the major cause of migration is different pay and access to jobs even though it looks at other factors contributing to the departure, the essential position is taken by individual higher wages benefit element.
